Polyphonic: I don’t have a lot to say about this game, other than the fact that it is a shitload of fun, and I will buy anything The Behemoth puts own from here on.

Iroquois Pliskin: The widespread abuse of the word ‘awesome’ has deprived me of the one word meet to describe Castle Crashers. Here’s the deal: Castle Crashers is awesome. Not ‘this ice cream is really tasty’ awesome, awesome awesome. Hitler’s-head-exploding-into-pieces-at-the-end-of-Bionic-Commando-awesome. Ninja-Turtles-when-you’re-nine awesome. I could go on and on about all the small details the game gets right, how viciously splendid the animation is, etc., but this game just obviates the need for critical analysis. Go buy it. Buy the trial version if you must, but you’re lying to yourself if you think you’re going to be able to restrain your desire for this game after a level.

Forksclovetofu: I had really high hopes and had a ball until I hit a sticking place of constant grind that turned me off in the worst way. Cutesy and fun reiteration of Gauntlet that I could recommend unreservedly… if only the multiplayer had worked!
